HiView is a new imaging viewer application created by HiRISE with support for JPEG2000 files. It’s free software you can install to drag and drop JP2 URLs from the HiRISE website to without waiting for a download.

PDS_JP2: PDS JPEG2000 File Format Conversion
The PDS_JP2 software package contains applications and a library of reusable C++ classes for the conversion to and from standard Planetary Data System uncompressed image data files and the new standard PDS/JP2 image data files. HiRISE RDR data products are distributed in PDS/JP2 format generated by this software.

This software is especially useful for decompressing only a selected area of the large HiRISE RDR data products, optionally at a reduced resolution. The resulting raw pixel image data can then be used with other image processing software that is not capable of reading JP2 files directly.

See the PDS_JP2 Software page for more information including downloading the software.
